Edward Snowden gave his first ever interview on an American television network last night. In the interview, he made some startling claims about his background and how he ended up in Russia. The most shocking thing he told NBC News' Brian Williams was that he was "trained as a spy."

Is he telling the truth? Was he an operative in foreign countries trained in CIA and NSA espionage? Or is he just talking himself up?
Watch the full interview below to decide for yourself.
